Football Dinners


2018 We are ENDING this longstanding Tradition of serving tenderloins and homemade pies and desserts on game days for each  Iowa home football game. We appreciate the support we have received from Iowa fans over the years!

Solon United Methodist Church has been serving up tenderloins, church burgers, and homemade soup for over 60 years for all the home Iowa football games.  We appreciate all of the help from our energetic, fun group in the kitchen, dining room, or on the cleanup crew.  Along with a “little” work we all have had a good time as we enjoyed lively conversation and fellowship, great laughter, and team work.    – The Football Dinner Committee thanks you!
